noun 1. Ullr is the Patron Saint or God of Skiing. 2. Commonly referred to by skiiers and snowboarders as the God of Snow. Word Origin: Norse.
Breckenridge hosts Ullr Fest each year in January – a week-long festival dedicated to winning his favor to increase the snow fall. Add it to the bucket list! (And start praying to Ullr – we really could use a lot more snow this year!)
